In which adventure can be found a copy of the module you are adventuring in (This might be a bit unfair - although the setting is quite prophetic).

Hmmm, yeah that sounds familiar...I think I've heard about that without having been on that adventure.

1) In the same vein as the earlier "Magic-user spell" question I asked: What is the "unique" Cleric spell in the original Players Handbook that is not a Alteration, Abjuration, Illusion/Phantasm, Conjuration/Summoning, Divination, Evocation, Necromatic or Enchantment/Charm (or combination of thereof) ? What is the type and spell name?

2) What is the only creature in the MM, MM2 or FF that has a movement rate above 48"?

3) A Druid should be always in possession of Greater Misletoe in order to cast spells. If not greater, than lesser or borrowed mistletoe can be used. What other two "components" (both "plant" related) will allow a Druid to cast a spell (albeit with a very reduced spell effectiveness)?
BONUS: What exactly is Greater Mistletoe?

4) What are the names of the caverns from B1 In Search of the Unknown?

5) What are the 3 breath weapons that Bahamut the Platinum Dragon can use?

6) Of the main humanoid races in the Monster Manual (Goblin, Hobgoblin, Ogre, Kobold, Gnoll, Bugbear and Orc), which has the shortest life span? What is the typical lifespan?
Which has the longest lifespan? How old?

7) In the sample dungeon and example of play (in the DMG) the party begins exploration of an abandoned monastery. After exploring several rooms and killing some large spiders, the party encounters some sort of creatures right before the "example of play" ends. What did they encounter?

8 ) What is a marine Hobgoblin called (per Monster Manual)?


5) Chlroine Gas, Fire, or vibrations ray that didintigrates up 150 HP of damage.

7) Ghouls

8 ) Marlinth


8 ) A marine hobgoblin is a Koalinth (Deadlord was pretty close)

7) Ghouls is right

5 ) The vibration ray is correct - the other two are not . . .


Some others that were answered:

2) Quickling is correct

3) Holly and Oak leaves are correct.  Anyone know the special way mistletoe must be harvested to make it Greater Mistletoe?

4) Caves of Chaos are incorrect.

6) Kobold do live the longest (135 years).  The shortest span is . . . ?

The caverns in B1 are called Caverns of Quasqueton.  And I think Orc live the shortest life span.  30 or 40 years.

Ah, for some reason I read the Caverns question as B2. I knew the Caverns of Quasqueton too. B1 was my first adventure.
What artifact can be found in the city of liches in H4?

Mistletoe collected on the Winter solstice (or maybe spring equinox?) with some sort of silver cutting utensil.

I do remember that you don't find the Wand of Orcus until the end and pretty much you have to kill Orcus to get it.  City of Liches...gotta be Hand or Eye of Vecna.  Unless you play H4 after Die Vecna Die! and then it might be the earlobe, big toe, or foreskin of Vecna.  That frickin' Lich gets around more than that drow hussy Eclavdra.  :D

The artifact is the Hand of Vecna.

Sir Bluto Sans Pite. Now, think back to 9th-grade French ... "sans" ... ringing any bells?

So, you've got a good example of Schick humor here: "Sir Bluto Without Pity."


Hmm, based on Erik Mona's usage of this character in one of his "Absolute Power" Living Greyhawk modules (the first one, "River of Blood"), I thought that "Sans Pite" was supposed to mean "without feet" (in French)???

I always thought (and read somewhere; not sure where, at the moment) that this was a little bit of Schick humor (obviously hoping for those on the up-take to pronounce it "pity"). However, perhaps I've been suckered by some sort of D&D urban legend ...

The "pite" doesn't work well in a "straight" French translation, though. It roughly translates to "pita," believe it or not — and, to the French, foot/feet is pied/pieds.

Plus, if he's "without feet," what the hell is he doing in WPM with those Boots of Striding and Springing ...? :)

No takers? :D

In fact, it should read "Pitié", which is "Pity" in french.

The "sans pitié" is a common adjective for villains of the arthurian saga.

Yes you were correct . . . (incidentally, it has been made a Necromatic spell in 3rd edition).

Don't suppose you know the "unique" type of Cleric spell from the Players Handbook. (HINT: It's a very popular low-level spell)

Not the one I was thinking of.  Which means reading EX2 again.  Thanks Allan! :?  :lol:

Nah, your not missing anything, just kind of an ongoing inside joke with me.  And it was mentioned in WG4.  Now if there were such a thing published, I'd be one of the first to grab one up since I think Tharizdun is such a cool baddie.  Kind of like D&D's version of the Necronomicon.  :twisted:
